Dr. Shang, MD., PhD., is Associate Professor of the Department of Neurology at UT Southwestern Medical Center. He is certified in Neurology and Vascular Neurology by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. He specializes in cerebrovascular disease, and stroke treatment and prevention.
Dr. Shang earned his medical degree at Shandong University in China and PhD degree at Medical College of Wisconsin. He completed fellowship training in neuroscience at National Institute of Health and residency in neurology at University of Miami. Then he received advanced training in vascular neurology through fellowship at University of Miami.
Dr. Shang joined the UT Southwestern Faculty in 2012. He is currently the director of vascular neurology fellowship in the department of neurology.
Dr. Shang's research focuses on the inflammatory and infectious roles (such as varicella-zoster virus infection) in intracranial large vessel disease and small vessel disease. He is interested in comprehending the pathophysiology and hemodynamic changes in rare stroke disorders. These rare stroke disorders includes Moyamoya Disease, CADASIL, CARASIL, COL4A1 mutation, MELAS, cerebral amyloid angiopathy and it's related inflammation and angiitis, et al). Advanced neuroimaging technology such as high resolution MR vessel wall imagingn is used in his research. Dr. Shang is committed to the care of patients with cerebrovascular diseases and searching for new preventive treatment.
